I'm eating a big bowl of crow right now. Chauncey Billups (28 pts, 8 assts) absolutely killed the Celtics tonight. With all due respect to Rajon Rondo, who disappeared after a solid first half, Billups lived up to his Mr. Big Shot nickname. He abused anyone and everyone the Celtics threw at him in the 2nd half. And then with 1.7 left in a tie game, he made Tony Allen look like an idiot (Wanna bet how many times Doc Rivers said "Don't foul" during that final timeout?). The C's played a horrible 2nd half and thanks to two 3s by Eddie House and Ray Allen (FYI, I think the ankle is just fine) in the final minute, they nearly stole this one. For the record, I don't have a problem with Paul Pierce's shot selection. It was a decent look. This loss hurts because now we have to listen to the national media say I-told-you-the-Celtics-weren't-ready-to-play-with-the-big-boys.
